Newcastle United signed him in June 2023, immediately loaning him to Feyenoord, where he made a total of 37 appearances across all competitions, including four in the Champions League, scoring once.

“Yankuba is a young talent that has attracted a lot of interest, so we’re delighted to welcome him to the club,” said Brighton’s technical director David Weir.

“He is an exciting attacking player with incredible speed. He had a very impressive campaign with Feyenoord, gaining experience in both the Champions League and Europa League.

“Now we will give him the time and support he needs to ensure that he settles in,” he added.
